Color Run is available for the 5k and 1mi fun run, and 1/2 marathon will be without color. Half marathon and individual 5k will be timed, while the team 5k and 1-mile fun run for beginners/children/families will be untimed. All proceeds will be used to assist cancer patients and their families in Eastern NC through Southeastern Cancer Care, "Cures for the Colors".
Southeastern Cancer Care, “Cures for the Colors”, is a 501-c-3, non-profit, tax exempt organization established in 2011. The organization was created to assist cancer patients in Eastern North Carolina by assisting with basic living essentials such as grocery vouchers, gas cards, utility payments and oncology related prescription drugs. All of the proceeds raised stay in Eastern North Carolina to help those who are on active chemo, radiation or within three months of surgery. Assistance is offered to patients who live east of interstate 95 or the counties that have I-95 within their boundaries.
